Network Associates (NAI) has cleaned up at the recent Secure Computing 99 Awards taking three of the six Academy award categories.
NAI's CyberCop software outscored rivals for the General Security category, while the vendor's Dr Solomon's VirusScan held out competition from Trend Micro and Symantec to win the hotly contested Anti-Virus category. Improving its performance one rung from last year's second place, NAI also took out the Encryption category with its PGP software.
Furthermore, CyberCop has received the only five-star rating in InfoSecurity News' recent Intrusion Detection Review. "As companies begin to realise how easy and important a regular network scan can be, CyberCop's best-of-breed attributes such as ease of use, the ability to customise results, and the sheer number of vulnerabilities scanned for continue to make it the best choice for network managers and security professionals alike," claimed Wes Wasson, director of product marketing for NAI.
The remaining three categories from Secure Computing 99 were won by VASCO Data Security (Access Control), KyberPASS Corporation (Communication Security) and AXENT Technologies (Security Management).
